"Hi, Thanks for your replies. I have a resmed s9 escape machine, which is the one the clinic provides as standard.  I often find myself waking up with nasal drip and only really suffer dryness if I've been ill. In terms of cold room, I…"

"If you have the right machine, a heated hose might help a lot. You are getting condensation without a humidifier at the moment, the last thing you want to do is add one. However, it might need to be at a low setting, just enough to heat the air…"

"No, it's not you Katie, as we really do hear of this.  It's worth trying a hose cover as it seems to help others with the same problem.  If it doesn't cure it I would ask for a humidifier."

Excess water in mask - no humidifier

Hello I was wondering if anyone had any experience or ideas about excess water in cpap mask.I'm wearing a resmed swift fx nasal mask and I wake up with a lot of water in the pillows and also near the vent. The thing is I don't use a humidifier as I've never had trouble with dry mouth or anything. Every night I wake up with the water either pouring out the vent holes or back into my nose.The sleep clinic are baffled by this and they say they've never heard of it happening with cpap users who…See More
